Designing a module for the spatial beam shaping of femtosecond lasers (M/F)

The internship

We are seeking an intern to assist in designing a module for the spatial beam shaping of femtosecond lasers for materials microprocessing. The project will focus on creating opto-electronics methods for aligning and controlling the shape of the laser beam. Using your optical and instrumentation skills, you will be asked to:

  • Participate in the optical design and testing of a beam shaping module
  • Design optical measurements to generate analog and digital error signals
  • Develop feedback loops to optimize module performance
  • Accelerate image processing algorithms to stabilize module performance



Key points:
  • Knowledgeable about geometrical and wave optics
  • Experience in experimental free-space optics and/or physics in general
  • Analytical and synthesis skills


Desirable skills:
  • Programming skills (Python language preferentially) for hardware interfacing
  • Experience in designing, prototyping and testing in instrumentation
  • Detail-oriented, rigorous, motivated and autonomous


Work environment:

  • A rapidly growing, innovative company
  • A young and dynamic team
  • Exceptional scientific environment: 1/3 of the employees have PhDs in physics


Salary and benefits:

  • Legal compensation
  • Lunch vouchers


Contract type: Internship
Start date: as soon as possible
Location: Rennes (near a metro stop)
Domain of expertise: Optics/Photonics/Telecoms
Training period: 5 months or more
Education: Student in the Engineering/Master’s degree program
